I've had enough of the U.S law about under age people. Let me tell you a story. My father gave me $70.00 to spend freely. So I was pondering over what I should get. Finally, I decided to buy a Halo 3 limited edition controller. Here is the convo

*Walks into Gamestop and greets the employees*

Employee: Hi! How may I help you today?
Me: Hey I wanted to buy the Halo 3 controller
Employee: No, I can't sell that to you, you have to be 17 or over.
Me: WTF?! Why? It's just a controller
Employee: The controller is rated M
*Really pissed off*
Me: So like wtf, now they put ratings on hardware? Am I going to kill someone with a controller?
Employee: I don't know man, sorry but you could buy the orig. black or white controller.

*Buys the black wireless controller*

*Goes to the pet shop*

*Reads the sign which says ,"Please consult employee before holding the pet".

Me: Hey can I hold the cute rabbit?
Employee: Sorry dude, you have to be 18 or over

*walks out without arguing*


I could talk about what happened about me entering the pawn shop but don't want to waste your time.

Since then, I am never able to go somewhere without my older bro. And I am 16.

At 1st I was like "Is this another one of those 'oh man i cudnt get smokes!' or 'y carnt i git in2 da niteclubs!?' threads" but then I was like "OMG! That's bullshit... an M rated Controller... And you have to be 18 to hold a rabbit? That's just fucked up!"
Give up all you suckers we the tightest muthafuckas And you never seen us talking shit before now

You peelin' potatoes while we sonic alligators
Makin' records sellin' like we smokin' crack now

'Joe' -'what now'?
'We bad.' -'Bad how'?
'We make a track to shake a cow
and move you like you startin something nasty?

'And then' -What then?
'We do it again, don?t make no money for us to spend
on yachts and boats and planes and drugs and scooters?

I will understand why controllers are rated M and you have to be 18 to hold a rabbit? I don't think so...

God I remember the nightmare days of me and my friends trying to get into clubs and pubs when we were 16/17. To make matters worse we all looked young as hell and probably didnt present ourselves with the greatest confidence. Depressingly walking from pub to pub, almost begging people to let us in because we were too stubborn go home having spent the time and money to actually even get to these places. Fake ID's, hiding in the toilets, flattering the bouncer, we always got caught eventually.

Bad times....Bad times......

There not that strict where I live, I could easily buy 16+ movies and games without having them ask for my age. They would be like "good choice, it's a great game man, lots of shooting and blood" The hell he would even sell it to a 4 year old.

I can understand rabbit part... Maybe the person who owns the store has had trouble in the past with people stealing the animals or something like that. If not, then I guess that would count as ageism. Don't try to sue them though... icon_razz.gif


As for the part about the controller, now that's just f*cked up.

I can understand not being able to see the rabbit and buy it, thats the law.. Before that law was in place lots of teens would buy pets and kill them for fun, or do stupid inhumane things to it..

But not being able to buy a halo 3 controller is retarded

Okay, I stayed with you until about 2 sentences into your post.
After that, I was lost.

Anyways, this is the STUPIDEST thing I've ever heard.
How the fuck is hardware rated M?
God, I can almost imagine soon Halo and other M-rated game novels are going to be included too.
"This book is rated M. I'm sorry, son, but I can't sell this to you."

Hi. I am 17.99 years old. I will have to wait 0.01 years or about 4 days in order to be able to buy a pet, because otherwise the pet is at risk of being mutilated.


If what you're saying was true, then the minimum age would be 13 years at most, give or take. The clerks just trolled him or were plain dumb.

I can see the Rabbit thing.. They aren't going to let a little kid come in by himself and hold the animals, not saying your a little kid but its just easier to make it 18+ because most people that age have ID ect..

M rated Controller.. Lol..

/reported

that flame was unneeded and I truly believe that you shouldn't own a mature game after reading that "post".

Also to my first comment, people can't see a freaking joke? I mean an M rated controller is idiotic, the idiot probably thought "OH halo thats M so he can't have anything related" The bunny is understandable though.

To the quote M games should not be played by people less that 16 or 15 if they are mature. Also learn 2 grammar.
